Go Google Yourself

3 Jun ’06

With Google Desktop and other (hyper)local search tools so popular now, shouldn’t restaurants, merchants and the like now be making liberally annotated vcards available for download on their sites? Interesting – a vcard with a resto’s menu in the notes field, with all of that data available to be searched when I next Google myself looking for “paella” (as I often do) or “calamari” (less often, but still, with brio). How odd that one of the first uses suggested for a “home computer” has amounted to almost nothing.
